Optional Microbiological Protection

With the infrastructure of cities all over North America crumbling under neglect and budget constraints, many customers have asked us if there was a product that they could add to their system that would provide them with additional insurance and peace-of-mind against the possibility of a failure of their municipal water treatment system. These concerns have arisen due to several high-profile cases of contamination in city water supplies across the continent, some of which have resulted in illness and even death. All of our ecoPLUS™ systems can be equipped with an ultraviolet light (UV) to sterilize bacteria, viruses, and other illness-causing microorganisms which could be present in your water. UV disinfection is safe, effective, economical, and best of all, does not add undesirable chemicals to your water like chlorine or chloramine. We offer a superior UV system with colour LCD display at a lower price than our competitors - simply better value.

Protect your appliances from hard water scale

Water Conditioner

Optional ecoTAC™ Salt-Free Hard Water Treatment

Nothing damages your high-end appliances (including water heaters, dishwashers, and clothes washers) more than hard water scale. Hard water minerals form a stubborn scale which damages components, reduces efficiency, and causes unsightly deposits. These same minerals dry out skin and hair, leaving them rough and dull. For protection against the damaging effects of hard water on your plumbing system, hot water heater, and other appliances, consider adding one of our ecoTAC™ salt-free hard water conditioners to your system. We use the industry's top selling salt-free conditioning technology called Template Assisted Crystallization (or "TAC" for short). Recommended where water hardness exceeds 7 grains per gallon or 120 parts per million (120 mg/l).

Get peace-of-mind knowing that your water is being sterilized against bacteria, viruses, and other microbiological contaminants (such as cryptosporidium and giardia) when it enters your home, and that your appliances are being protecting against the damaging effects of hard water scale.

How our ecoPLUS™ EP-1000 Works

The heart of all of our ecoPLUS™ premium water treatment systems is our ecoPLUS™ treatment tank which contains an optimal blend of water treatment media for wide-spectrum contaminant removal, including:

Inside of ecoPLUS 1000

Sediment Filter The first step of our ecoPLUS™ system is a true high capacity, multi-gradient sediment filter. It is like having 4 sediment filters in one! The filter cartridge has 4 layers that provide progressively finer filtration down to 5 microns. Our filter has far higher capacity than our competitors, thereby reducing the frequency that you have to change filters and saving you money. Our pre-filter also provides better flow rates and less pressure loss!

Gravel A proper gravel underbed distributes water flow evenly to prevent channeling in the filtration media.

KDF-55 KDF-55 Media - a generous layer of KDF-55, a patented zinc/copper redox media that removes or reduces a wide range of contaminants including chlorine, as well as water soluble heavy metals such as lead, copper, mercury, and chromium. KDF-55 extends the life of the activated carbon media and has a bacteriostatic effect that reduces the risk of bacterial, algae, and fungal fouling.

Calgon coconut shell activated carbon Brand-name, Calgon coconut shell activated carbon for the removal of chlorine, disinfection by-products, a wide range of volatile organic compounds (such as pesticides, herbicides, and chemical residuals), as well as a host of other contaminants that adversely affect the taste and smell of your water.

Centaur catalytic activated carbon True Centaur catalytic activated carbon to extend media life and enhance removal of chloramine, organics, and an even wider range of contaminants that impact the taste and smell of your water.

Freeboard Freeboard provides expansion room for the water filtration media during upflow service.

The result is fresh, great tasting water at every tap, silky soft skin and hair when you bathe and shower.

The water flow path through our ecoPLUS™ system is upflow. This prevents clogging and eliminates the risk of channeling, a phenomenon that reduces the contact time between the media and the contaminants that negatively impacts performance of many downflow systems. Eco Friendly

The media bed in the ecoPLUS™ EP-1000 is designed to provide effective chlorine reduction over a life of 1,00,000 gallons or 5 years, after which the media in the tank can be replaced in about half an hour without any plumbing knowledge or special experience - anyone can do it. The current market leader in premium whole house filter systems suggests that this process is difficult - they just want to convince you to buy their expensive replacement tanks. Replacing the media in our tanks is not only easier and far more economical, it is better for the environment too.

Comparison to Competitors

Our top competitors build good products, but if you take the time to compare, we are confident that you will see where our commitment to effective and efficient design (and the extras we offer free with each system) provide you with a simply superior product at a more economical price.

With ecoPLUS™, you will Pay Less and Get More - we guarantee it!

Many of our top competitors over-inflate their prices only to offer special "discounts" that can change day-by-day and even hour by hour. Their pricing policy is designed to reduce your ability to comparison shop and create a sense of urgency to buy while a sale lasts. We believe you should have the time to research our products, compare, and make an informed buying decision on your schedule, and for the same everyday low price with no surprises. We also offer 90 day price protection on all ecoPLUS™ systems, and we will beat any competitor's price on a comparable product, so you can buy with confidence that you are getting the best value for your hard earned dollar.

ecoPLUS™ EP-1000 Series Premium Whole House Water Filters Reviews

5 Stars
I found the Ecoplus EP1000 while looking for reviews on the Pelican PC1000 and I'm really glad I did. From what I found, the products are almost identical and the EP1000 was quite a bit less. Now that I've got it installed I'm even happier although I suspect the Pelican filter would have performed similarly. - Liz A.

No more messy filter changes!5 Stars
Once you get used to drinking water & showering without chlorine you really start to notice it when it's there. Replaced my old cartridge based water filter with this and I'm really enjoying not spilling water everywhere when I had to change the filters every 3 months. - Joe K.
Best purchase ever5 Stars
We love our new water treatment system. It provides great water without any loss of pressure. The installation was straightforward. The price was much better than other systems of similar size. Our only regret is that we waited so long to get this system. - Aaron S.
Very Happy Customer5 Stars
My echoplus 600 tac system was DYI installed 2 months ago. We are very happy with it. My wife really likes the taste of the water out of all our taps. - Dave L.

Love our system. Completely eliminated the sulphur smell from our system. The water softener works great for hard water spots as well. -

system works well, clean, safe and soft water. Very pleased with the product! - John Goodwin
Purchased Three EP1000TAC Systems 5 Stars
First I bought an ep1000tac for my house and love it. My wife said, no more water spots and the water pressure when way up. Doesn’t take and electricity, salt, and doesn’t need any back flushing! No water waste like the salt water system I replaced. Then my daughter’s salt water softener went out. So I replaced hers. And last, I bought my grandparents 107 year old house, renovated it, and my wife and I are going to live there. So I’m sold on the product, service, and performance. - Mike
Get What You Pay For5 Stars
Product is as advertised. Customer service was exceptional. My system was just recently installed so although new, so far, so good. No complaints. - Thomas
ecoPlus Replacement and Anti-Scale Media5 Stars
The ecoPlus replacement media and TAC+ anti-scaler media arrived quickly and well packaged, including media funnel. Video instructions were useful and media bags labeled. I did have a question about the TAC+ media and some tank cleaning instructions, but staff were easily accessible and ready to answer my questions. The procedures was pretty straight-forward and took about an hour. Honestly, half-the-time was disconnecting the plumbing and wheeling the tanks outdoors to be cleaned and refilled. Overall, I'm happy with the replacement fill product and price of refill media was competitive. 7 - James R

Our convenient installation kit reduces installation time and cost.

We recommend that ecoPLUS™ systems be installed by a licensed plumber; however, your warranty is valid as long as your system is installed in accordance with local plumbing codes and the Owner's Manual.

ecoPLUS™ EP-1000 Series Premium Whole House Water Filters Customer Questions & Answers

Question:What are the volumes or masses of the various media in the EP-1000?

The EP-1000 is made up of 22.8 lbs of KDF-55 Media, 1.1 cubic feet of Calgon coconut shell activated carbon, and 0.4 cubic feet of Centaur catalytic activated carbon.
By HomePlus Water on Sep 12, 2023

Question:Annual replacement filter requirements and costs of filters for eco pls hard water sysrem

The prefilter (Hydronix SDC-45-2005) is typically replaced every 9 - 12 months. The EcoPlus media is typically replaced every 5 years. The EcoTac media (Scale Stop) is also typically replaced every 5 years. It requires 5 liters of it.
By HomePlus Water on Dec 19, 2023

Question:Does the system reduce water pressure?

Yes, like any filter with a cartridge or tank the ecoPlus EP-1000-TAC Premium Whole House Water Filter System will slightly reduce pressure. It is typically only a few PSI at typical service flow rates.
By HomePlus Water on Jun 24, 2024

Question:Does the system remove PFAS?

Activated carbon like that found in the first tank of the EP-1000-TAC has been shown to remove PFAS from water, but the system as a whole has not been tested or certified for the remove PFAS. If used for PFAS removal the media will have a shorter lifespan than if it was used primarily for chlorine reduction. If you are looking for a system for PFAS removal we'd recommend the Enpress Pioneer. It is certified for PFAS removal, has a filter life monitor, and is also a great multi-purpose filter.
